As noted at NBCNews.com this Sunday, November 4, President Barack Obama had a support of 48% and Mitt Romney only had 47% for the final NBC/WSJ presidential polls, as compared to 47% each for both presidential candidates in the same survey done two weeks ago, the day before their final debate.
According to the report, majority of the surveys showed that Obama is slightly leading over Romney, particularly in Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin. This is despite the fact that both of them are virtually tied in their national presidential polls, with the president leading by 3% before the first presidential debate.
This final NBC/WSJ poll was conducted to 1,475 likely voters (including 443 cell phone-only respondents) from November 1 to 3 (Thursday to Saturday), and has a margin of error of plus-minus 2.55 percentage points, with the full details to be released at 6:30 p.m. ET, Sunday.
On the other hand, the Rasmussen Reports presidential polls from Friday to Saturday (November 2 and 3) showed that President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied at 48% each, and were also tied for their Sunday (November 4) survey, with 49% each.
